ad331-60001 compatible with RP8400?

I have been trying for two days now to get an ad331-60001 gigabit network adapter to work on an RP8400 server running hpux 11.11. I have not had success installing the drivers. I tried loading patch phne_36237 in hopes of getting the driver from there but the patch will not load. Apparently I am missing a base software bundle. Does anyone happen to know the pathc and firmware requirement to get this card working on an RP8400? Will this card even work on an RP8400?

I do not believe that board is supported in that machine, or on that OS version.partsurfer shows it as being a card for the rx6600

having checked again, it does seem that HP-UX 11.11 does support this, but teh suport matrix does NOT list the rp8400, just the rp8420 and rp8440.
From the document http://docs.hp.com/en/9229/AD331AAD332Aoverview.pdf you need to have the Decfember 2006 OE update, or load the IEther-00 driver bundle.

Thank you very much for that information. I will try to find that bundle. Do you happen to know if that is a downloadable bundle?

Quick update to this thread. I hope this is useful to others. I contacted my colleagues at hp but they were unable to provide me the driver. I ended up finding the driver on www.hp3000.com. The direct link is as follows: http://www.hp300.com/hp-drivers-list/r_9_4.shtml
